Using drop shapes in your jewelry can bring amazing dimension to your projects. Cynthia used dagger beads between more traditional rondelle and bicone shapes to make this necklace stand out. The colors of the daggers complement the colors found in the Artbeads Designer Blend perfectly. You can find more inspiration for using drops in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
